I’ve been slowly but steadily plugging away on the woven shibori warp that was left on my table loom. At about 14 ppi it’s not too onerous but it takes a lot of flipping of levers. On the loom it looks like this:
That’s 20/2 wool (5,600 ypp) sett at 24 epi and an overtwisted 2-ply merino wool that’s even finer. The yellow yarn is a synthetic and is very strong so it doesn’t break when I use it to pull up the shibori ties. I have no idea how this particular undulating pattern is going to look when it’s done but that isn’t going to stop me! It’s always an adventure with shibori anyway. I’m going to dye it so the combination of permanent wrinkles from the overtwisted weft and colour will hopefully give me something interesting. We’ll see. Maybe it will even be wearable.
That’s pretty much all I’ve been up to today. I covered a few more of the books I bought recently with clear contact paper. Nothing exciting. It’s so gorgeous and warm out today that I’m out here on my upper deck typing. Gotta love it this close to November! I’m sure it’s not going to last.
